We're currently building a new intranet with modern sharepoint, and I'm migrating some of the news from the old system to sharepoint. But I'd like to have them in the original chronological order. So I started in the past and work myself to the present.

To save time, I'd like to copy certain news that I've already created so I don't have to create the whole structure of the columns and webparts used in these kind of news. Now I suddenly realized, that when I copy an existing newspage, the publish date gets copied as well. So even though the newly copied news was created after the original, the publish date is the same for both, which completely messes up the whole chronological order.

 

Is there anything I can do here? Or do I really (really?) have to create a whole new page from scratch every single time?
